Recent student feedback

5.0 stars Pat O'Donnell was a tremendous instructor and tailored his teaching to the participants. His entertaining manner added to his incredible knowledge were invaluable. I would recommend him as an instructor to anyone. I learned so much.
5.0 stars Before this class, I had never even heard of Microsoft Project. Now having been through 2 days of training, I feel quite confident that I can take the tools I've learned and apply them easily at work. Chris was a great instructor--Personable and knowledgeable. If I need to learn any new applications, I'd definitely come back here!
4.2 stars This class was an absolute pleasure. So often when attending a training the instructor goes directly from the book, however Mr. O'Donnell mixed in real world situations that he has run across which was very helpful. He was a reat instructor.
5.0 stars Pat is an excellent resource and has given me many great tips and tools for the microsoft program as well as project related tips outside of the software that were relevent to me as a I a project manager. I would recommend this class to my other co-workers.
